As this is a more general question I am placing it outside the string it belongs to (the Apple Network Server).
I wanted to install a device driver for a 10/100 TX PCI Ethernet card, an IBM one, labeled "9-P". After starting AIX "Smit" told me about the missing file sets so I went to IBM's archives for version 4 of AIX and found some .bff, .txt and info files that seem to be the right ones. I downloaded them, burned them to an ISO 9660 Rockridge CD (top level, no directories), inserted it into my AIX box, mounted the CD-ROM, fired up "Smit" agin. But no drivers could be installed / were found on the CD-ROM. Opening the CD-ROM in a regular window outside "Smit" just revealed the .txt files - nothing else.
Am I doing something wrong? Do I have to have .rte files? These are not included in IBM's archive so I suppose the available files are more or less updates to already installed drivers, right? This would be pretty annoying as I am not owning any driver file sets regarding that card. Does anybody have a hint for me?
Again, thanks in advance!
